Originally designed in 1935, it exemplifies the concept of Scandinavian simplicity, and as a result still looks modern today. Manufactured by Artek, Chair 65 uses Aalto's characteristic L-shaped legs; part of the designer's standardised system of components.
It is made entirely in birch wood, giving the chair its pared-back and lightweight expression, and has been form-pressed to achieve its unique shape.
Available in a black, white or clear lacquer, it makes an ideal dining chair for a wide range of interiors. Chair 65 can also be upholstered - for more information and pricing please [email protected] or call our showroom on 020 7278 8456.
Artek was founded in 1935 by four young idealists; Aino and Alvar Aalto, Maire Gullichsen, and Nils-Gustav Hahl. They believed in a grand synthesis of art, architecture, design and technology; and the power it has to transform the way we live. This ambition and the resulting furniture made them one of the forerunners of modern design. Artek is perhaps best known for their Alvar Aalto furniture pieces such as the Stool 60 or Chair 69. But other seminal pieces on their roster include Ilmari Tapiovaara's Kiki Sofa and Enzo Mari's Sedia 1 Chair. The company are also known for their work with contemporary designers, artists and architects including Konstantin Grcic, Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec and Hella Jongerius.
Artek's iconic Chair 69, designed by Alvar Aalto in 1935, updated with a palette inspired by his famous Palmio Sanatorium project
